Family of Emmett Till Sends Prayers to Lil Wayne


(AllHipHop News) The family of Emmett Till isn’t letting their clash with Lil Wayne stop them from sending the ailing rapper positive vibes as he recovers in a L.A. Hospital.

This afternoon the Mamie Till Mobley Foundation posted the following status to their Facebook page:

“Certainly the family of Emmett Till is praying for Lil Wayne’s recovery. . .Wayne IS a HuMAN, just as Emmett Till was.”

Last month Lil Wayne came under fire for his inflammatory lyrics that mentioned the brutally murdered 14-year-old. Epic records pulled the song and Till’s family wrote an open letter expressing their anger over the rappers lack of sensitivity.

    Gods way of keeping a dude humble, when your bless use it the right way or it will be removed from you..Lil Ugly has been a damn Fool for the last 3 or so months. I hope Lil Ugly is better but dude needs to bring it down like 100. (tired of his Ugly ass yo)

    that right there is what today’s generation will never understand – how to be the bigger person, put those little things aside and want to see no harm to the next man especially over words…

        I’m in no way a fan of his music. No way. But I don’t want to see anybody like that. Imagining myself or fam having a seizure with no control over it. Nah man. I hope him and all these people get better. Find a cure.

    Black folks forever on the kumbaya bullsh*t. This is why we continue to be disrespected. We allow the shit to happen over and over. All we do is pray. White Jesus is a helluva drug.

    • We wasn’t singin kumbaya when we fought in the Civil War and freed OURSELVES from slavery (Frederick Douglass as an intercessor). Malcolm X got a bullet..Tupac got a bullet..MLK got a bullet..Muhammad Ali got his title taken away..John Carlos & Tommy Smith became the face for the “ungrateful pissed off Black athlete.” We’ve always fought. We come a long way in a short time. White Domination and Capitalism is a helluva drug. Unite the people, revolution means change & change is progressive, not instant
